I just got the best mail! Aren't these the MOST GORGEOUS reproduction prints? I love them!! Thank you so much, Lyn, these will be part of my Dear Jane Quilt. These fall into the category of almost too precious to use...do you know what I mean??
On a blog recently, a very nice lady said "one quilter's trash is another quilter's treasure!" Or something like that...I salivated over those scraps when I saw them on that blog...and guess what!? The scraps appeared at my door! I just sat down in the middle of the floor and sorted and loved each piece and planned...and you guessed, had a happy little Boo-hoo right there in the middle of the floor! I think I may be the only person in the world that is so tickled with scraps. Thank you so much, Sharon, thank you, thank you! This makes a few times lately I have been blessed with scraps...my favorite thing, more than even going to the quilt shop on sale day! Thank you to all your generous and giving hearts.
Speaking of generous hearts...I recently heard of a lady who recently had breast cancer. She was very, very ill, had surgery and all kinds of treatments. Then, bad, bad complications too. Did she get angry? Bitter? Feel sorry for herself? Nope! None of these things! You know what she is doing? She is making quilts to raffle to help the Breast Cancer foundation! The most gorgeous quilts, out of all pinks. so guess what? I am going to fill a box with pink fabrics of all kinds and send it to her! If you would like to throw a pink fat quarter in too...just let me know...we are going to inundate this precious lady with pink! I intend to send the box by the end of May, so please, if you are interested, let me know pretty soon. I will reveal the lady, who is a very popular blogger, at the time I send the box.
Speaking of cool bloggers...I recently met a new scrappy blogger!! Her name is Natasha... Please, go and see her work...I expect to see such fun things from her!!! You can visit her here!
On the home front, I have been making curtains for the laundry room...excuse the junk on the right...seems like the more I clean and organize, the more junk I manage to scare up!! I have Joyce's rose candle mat in there...I love it and want to see it every day, and it seems like I do laundry...EVERY DAY, Lol!!I am in the middle of painting this little laundry room...it was the light gray color, but will be a very light, pink, almost white...the paint color is called "antique White".
More paint prep....out with the gray! See my blue painter's tape? I am doing it for real!!
In quilting news for me...I am still working on my Starry, starry night quilt. I decided to make it bigger, to use every last little piece of my blues. Well...snort...the joke was on me! I ran out of my blues...so had to buy a couple fat quarters to finish it up! So, I am still working on it, and maybe can show you more progress tomorrow...it is a vendetta to finish it up now, LOL!
Have a super great day, everyone! Tuck a pink fat quarter in an envelope and send it when you send your bills off...you won't hardly notice the effort at all!!! Let me know and I will let you know where to send the pinks!
